Clematis wrapped round tree

Posted: 10/02/2016 at 22:31

With the blue on, I just leave it alone as I forget its there when not in flower. My other clematis I cut them back at the relevant time of year, they all have different pruning times, largely dependant on when they flower. Ive got a bit of a 'thing' for clematis, they are one of my favourite plants and I have quite a few of them in the garden..

Heres a better photo of the blue (unknown) clematis growing through the tree..

I have Clematis Dr Ruppel growing over an archway (photo taken when not in flower!)

As you can see, I kind of like clematis

I have a climatis growing through a young Amelanchier Lamarckii (June berry) tree, I just leave it to do its thing. You can make out the blue clematis to the left of this photo

Thanks Hazel, but I only ever reveal the bits that are looking good, theres parts of the garden that I wouldn't dare photograph , and the photos of the tulips and daff are from Sarah Ravens website

FG, I can't remember to be honest. I put them in last minute just after I had planted the each pot with a combination of Sarah Raven Florentine tulips, and both Felindre & Martinette daff bulbs..

Thats good to know chicky, I'm sure I will enjoy it. I assume he just gives one talk at one location? Was hoping he'd be visiting Sheffield.

Ive just booked myself a ticket, sadly the wife isn't at all interested so I'm going on my Jack Jones! Its a 2hr drive from Sheffield but Im looking forward to this.
